Who is Soundwave?

We are Don Engel on lead vocals, Jeremy Keeler on guitar, David Whittaker on bass, and Johnny Lawless on drums. 

We started as a drunken idea at the RBar, between two dads. What if we could rock out, playing all of our favorite music?  Could it turn into something?  Jeremy called David, David called John and we were off and running! It turned out, people actually liked to hear us perform...

We're talented musicians who just enjoy playing. We love the roar of the crowds. We love interacting with our fans. We want our fans to have a great time at every show!

We're glad that you're here and you want to know more. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, or subscribe to our YouTube channel. You can always find out the general what's up with Soundwave!
